Alan Jones’s history of Swansea’s Grand Theatre tells the story of this great iconic local venue from it’s opening in 1897 to the modern era. It’s early reputation was comparable to “the best theatres in the kingdom”, and it spent many successful years hosting the best shows from across the country. The 1930s proved to be difficult times for the theatre, but saved from closure by civic authorities, it regained it’s former glories and became the venue we love today.
Author Alan Jones, a Llanelli native, specialised in theatre studies at Swansea College, where he researched much of the material for this book. He went on to work for the BBC in London.
